Really a lovely, cozy place with an amazing sun-filled balcony, drinks and small snacks. Families, couples, dogs and drinks with people running by as you overlook the ocean and the palm-trees.

A very sought after setting, on the beach front in Sea Point. One can sit on the small terrace in front of the restaurant or in the well appointed interior. The menu is compact but offers something for everyone including some unusual and interesting items....More

Brilliant spot and bar for after work drinks to meet friends and enjoy the sea view and promenade. Value for money light meals, always served with a smile:) One of my favourite spots.

We had a wonderful line fish lunch in the courtyard. You have to try the sweet potato fries, they are devine. The courtyard is very tranquil, but if you want to see the sea then rather sit outside. The food was very good, the staff...More

Food, flair, flavour at Harveys . . . A "sundowner" is a drink taken at sundown, preferably whilst watching the sun slowly disappearing into the Atlantic Ocean. There are only a few places in Cape Town where one can do that in style and the terrace of Harveys restaurant at the Winchester Mansions hotel is one of them. Bistro by day and restaurant by night, Harveys offers guests South African cuisine with a European twist. No secret to the locals, the Winchester Mansions' Sunday Jazz Brunch is an absolute must. Throughout the year, renowned local and international jazz artists perform at the brunch, in summer in the If you have a chance, join us for the monthly Grapes, Gourmet and Gallery evening where Harveys welcomes food, wine and art lovers. We have joined forces with local and international artists and some of the best wine estates in the Cape for you to enjoy a great evening. For those special evenings with the girls join us for our Ladies' Night every Wednesday.
